BERLIN.- AUTOCENTER was founded in 2001 as an exhibition space by the artists Maik Schierloh and Joep van Liefland in a former auto body shop. It became an important non-for-profit space for art that operates outside the hierarchies of the art market and has been presenting international artists, at their early stages before they became part of written art history. On 333 sqm of exhibition grounds in Berlin’s district of Friedrichshain, AUTOCENTER presents its ideas and visions to an advanced arts audience of artists, curators, critics, collectors as well as architects, photographers and gallerists.

More than 30 of Berlins acclaimed artists are donating artworks in support of AUTOCENTER on the occasion of its 10th anniversary in a generous gesture of solidarity with Berlin as a center for artistic production. The auction benefits AUTOCENTER as one of the most important non-for-profits of the city and helps secure its future.

The preview the artworks will be presented at AUTOCENTER from September 3rd -7th. The auction will be held on September 8th, 2011 at 7pm.
